Tulsa 45, Marshall 38
October 6, 2012
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - Cody Green threw his only touchdown pass, a 4-yarder to Jordan James for the go-ahead score midway through the fourth quarter, and Tulsa stopped Marshall on downs twice in the fourth quarter to seal a 45-38 win Saturday.
The Golden Hurricane's quarterback connected with Thomas Roberson on the two-point conversion to follow up his touchdown, putting Tulsa (5-1, 3-0 Conference USA) up by seven with 8:25 remaining.
Then the Tulsa defense took over. Lowell Rose broke up a Rakeem Cato pass on Tulsa's 16-yard line on fourth-and-5 to stall a Thundering Herd (2-4, 1-1) drive with 3:32 left. Less than two minutes later, Tulsa's Marco Nelson broke up another pass by Cato on fourth-and-7 at the Golden Hurricane's 17 to stall Marshall's final possession and seal the win.
Alex Singleton rushed for three touchdowns on 94 yards for Tulsa.
Cato had three TDs and 391 yards passing for Marshall.
